The coaching programme caters for girls and boys of all abilities, from the most able, to players with little experience. Everyone is encouraged to play and improve their tennis. The aim of the programme is to develop technical and tactical awareness and to enjoy the challenge of competition.
We now compete annually in the prestigious Independent Schools
Tournament held at Eton College (for both boys and girls) in the last
week of the Summer Term. In 2014 and 2015 we won the U18 Loveband Plate.
In addition to higher level competitions, we also run school singles and doubles tournaments, house events, and competitions for pupils and parents.
Match play largely happens in doubles format. Fixtures are organised against other schools in the South West as well as the OAs, and are always exciting and competitive each year.
Specialist coaching is provided during all sessions to enable our tennis players to improve throughout the term and their time at King's in both singles and doubles. We have access to local indoor facilities to enable us to offer a year-round training programme.
Currently we have two Year 9 pupils – Morgan Hill Lamey and Matthew Harrison – both of who are National Standard players.
Two former pupils , Jordan Clayton and Pearllan Cipriano, are now playing in the USA on Tennis Scholarships. Both players attended King's Hall School before joining King's College.
Private coaching is also available at King's in one-to-one sessions.
